Windsor electronic legend Richie Hawtin, Detroit rock band the Dirtbombs and Swedish group Little Dragon are among 55 new acts announced for this year's Movement Electronic Music Festival during Memorial Day weekend in Detroit's Hart Plaza.

It marks Hawtin's second consecutive appearance at the festival; last year he presented his Plastikman: Live performance as well as a DJ set. This year he'll also be presenting artists from his Windsor- and Berlin-based M-nus label, including Ambivalent and Gaiser. The Dirtbombs, meanwhile, will be playing the rock-styled covers of 80s and 90s Detroit techno songs featured on their latest album, "Party Store;" the Movement show will kick off a tour that finishes back in Detroit on July 16 at the Magic Stick.

Little Dragon was recently part of Gorillaz acclaimed North American tour during the fall of 2010, while other additions to the Movement schedule include Space Time Continuum, Victor Calderone, Terrence Parker, Tortured Soul and the Detroit group Aux 88. Twenty-nine other acts including Sven Vath, Goldie, Visionquest, Fatboy Slim, Felix Da Housecat and Detroit techno pioneer Carl Craig's 69, were announced in march.

Weekend passes are now available for $60, along with $150 VIP passes, at www.paxahau.com/festival.
